CARES WOW Quarterly Award Winners Recognized

At Atchison Hospital and Clinics, we provide service and care in a number of ways to our patients, to family members and visitors and yes, even our co-workers. Whether it involves direct patient care, administrative services or hospitality and maintenance services, it is our goal to provide the best experience possible for everyone who walks through the doors of our facility.

Our CARES Behavior Standards are guidelines developed to assist us in building the kind of culture we want to have in our organization. A culture where patients' clinical and emotional needs will be met, and where our own staff will also feel valued and cared for.

CARES standards have been an integral part of our organization for several years; they are integrated into our daily work practices as well as our hiring and interview process, our new employee orientation and employee evaluations.

We have two established recognition programs with the CARES program. The On-the-Spot, peer to peer recognition and our CARES WOW recognition.
